They say you can’t fix stupid, and when it comes to cars you can’t fix totaled. Sometimes people get into car accidents, or fender benders if you will. But then again, sometimes people TOTAL their vehicle, which means total destruction. Beyond repair. No one ever wants their own car to get totaled, and here’s the proof. Drive safely!
This looks like a major t-bone accident. You know, the kind that comes at you directly from the side, often before you know it is happening? Not nearly as fun as a T-bone steak, and way less fun than T-Bone the rapper.
This was once a Mustang Shelby GT 500. A mighty beast. The problem with mighty beasts, however, is the fact that some people don’t know how to drive them. And that’s what we’ve got here: all muscle and no mind.
We think this used to be a Porsche. The back end looks like one. Regardless, this expensive piece of machinery is headed for the scrap pile. Some people enjoy the quality engineering of a Porsche; some just enjoy the quality engineering of the Porsche airbags.
This is a Lamborghini. Or at least it used to be. You may not have realized these supercars have the engine in the back, and the trunk in the front -- so on the bright side, at least this one could still be driven. It takes away a bit from the Lamborghini mystique, though.
Look, we don’t want to know what caused this total. Actually, we’re lying. We do. Because this looks like a workplace accident, the type that happens when someone is not paying attention at the wheel because they’re eating a Krispy Kreme. Sure, it’s delicious, but next time somebody’s gonna think twice!
Was this a car? We suspect it was once a nice Jaguar coupe. Now it’s a barely recognizable piece of metal. Accidents do happen, don’t they? But usually they don’t result in looking like someone detonated explosives in the passenger seat.
Uh Oh! Looks like someone drove into something and didn’t have enough clearance! Come one, what could crush a vehicle so uniformly like that? We can almost see something flat coming this vehicle’s way. At least they got the photo behind a really scenic background. This would make a nice holiday card.
It looks a little icy in this picture. We’re betting that someone was either driving too fast, or is from Florida. Because in some places it’s difficult for people to drive when it rains, so can you imagine what might happen if they had to drive through snow?
Let’s hope that the wheels came off after this convertible was totaled. Regardless, someone’s auto insurance premiums are going up after this accident.
You know your car is totaled when another vehicle drives on top of it. By the way, that car on the bottom is a Tesla Roadster, one of those super quiet electric sports cars ($109,000 retail price). We’re betting that SUV never heard it coming.
